February 24th: Native Plants

Filed under Meetings

The West Chicago Garden Club has returned to monthly, in person, meetings. Our February 24th meeting will feature speaker Denise Sandoval, an award-winning landscape designer and owner of Good Natured Landscaping. She has over 20 years of experience with native plants. We open the doors at 6:45, have a short business meeting at 7:00 and the speaker begins by 7:15pm. Our location is at St. Andrew Lutheran Church at the corner of Prince Crossing Rd and Geneva Rd, West Chicago.

In her program, “Gardening with Native Plants Through the Seasons,” Sandoval will take us through the seasons as we discover plants that are great for wildlife, grow well, and are beautiful in the garden, including small-medium landscapes. She will also share design tips for these plants.

The West Chicago Garden Club is open to anyone who enjoys gardening, from beginners to masters. Our members come from throughout the Western suburbs. Visitors are welcome to come to our meetings. At this time, masks are required at our meetings.
